A BASE64 decode would tell who is sending that thing, but contacting
backwards shows it to be:
Connected to 126.96.36.199.
220 swathi.ecil.co.in ESMTP server (Netscape Messaging Server - Version 3.01) ready Thu, 13 Jan 2000 11:36:39 +0530
221 swathi.ecil.co.in ESMTP server closing connection
Sigh, VGER is running 2.99.51-pre2 (I haven't gotten around to install
2.99.52-patch1 there yet) And VGER doesn't announce AUTH LOGIN
nor AUTH=LOGIN capability. That system is thus sending unsolicited
"AUTH LOGIN" :-(
Now I wonder whom to contact about that bug ??
Its Postmaster very least.
